We have eaten at O'Malleys so many times over the years I can't begin to count. The service has always been excellent and the food reliable. This past week we took out-of-town friends to share. We have always loved the wings and the huge selection of sauces. As well, I think they have the best burgers in town. But--- on... More

Food is usually good here but it can vary. Same with service. We have a student at WCU and eat out in the area many times a year. Have been here a few times. Fries were good on one visit but soggy on another. Wings are ok. Beer cheese was great both times ordered. The service was good on one... More

This is a local favorite to meet and greet with typical bar grill food and wide variety of drinks. Live music on certain nights is a big draw with college crowd.

Stopped for lunch with a co worker. I had the wings and split a basket of fries. Service was good, seating was good, wings came in about 10min. Drinks were filled fast and tons of napkins given. I like the parmesan garlic wings. Tons of flavors to pick from.

I have been coming to O'Malley's for about 15 years since I was a student at WCU and after when I was back in town and even worked as a bouncer there for a while. I haven't been there in several years so I told my wife I wanted to go have some wings before we headed back home. The... More

Its a sports watchers paradise. They serve pictures of some craft beers and domestic beers, have lots of TV's that are view-able from many areas, and even have a few bands on weekends. Food isn't great...but service is quick and room is mostly plentiful. Family friendly in daytime.

We had a small group meal here after a family function. The staff was very accommodating with our schedule and party count changes. Great pub and grub. Good variety of beers on tap. Nice variety of bar food. The wings and sauces were great! Notice, the boneless wings are just chicken strips, but still good. We had several appetizers that... More

Every time I visit O'Malley's I receive FRESH food and great service! It is nice to know that after moving my daughter in/out of her WCU dorm, there is a great restaurant waiting!

Stopped by for lunch the other day with my son. The menu is huge. My Reuben sandwich was delicious! My son's burger looked great. He really enjoyed it. We also had a chicken quesadilla for an appetizer. It was wonderful as well. Large selection of local craft beers too.
